Sinopsys : La Côte d’Azur, 1998
In the sun-dappled south of France, Emilie de la Martinières, the last of her gilded line, inherits her childhood home, a magnificent château and vineyard. With the property comes a mountain of debt—and almost as many questions.

Paris, 1944: A bright, young British office clerk, Constance Carruthers, is sent undercover to Paris to be part of Churchill’s Special Operations Executive during the climax of the Nazi occupation. Separated from her contacts in the Resistance, she soon stumbles into the heart of a prominent family who regularly entertain elite members of the German military even as they plot to liberate France. But in a city rife with collaborators and rebels, Constance’s most difficult decision may be determining whom to trust with her heart.

As Emilie discovers what really happened to her family during the war and finds a connection to Constance much closer than she suspects, the château itself may provide the clues that unlock the mysteries of her past, present, and future. Here is a dazzling novel of intrigue and passion from one of the world’s most beloved storytellers.



      Lucinda Riley invites us to know a history marked by war, betrayal and secrets. In the lavander garder, Know the History of Emilie, she is the only living member of the aristocratic de la Martinières family.  She inherits the family fortune, including their Paris house and a beautiful château in the south of France, but unfortunately for Emilie, her mother also left her with debt. She decides to sell the Paris house and use the money to restore the grandeur of the old château.
    As the secrets of the de la Martinières and the Carruthers families are revealed, Emilie must come to terms with the past, sort through the lies in the present, and forge a new future for herself.
     Again Riley enchants with its dual narrative, the last question is fascinating and senses, besides having a very well tied history, there are no loose ends.   We are captivated by the stories of Constance, and especially by the sight of them. Constance for her sense of duty and loyalty, and Emilie for her determination to create something wonderful from the tragedy and loss of war. 




The song is with Onerepublic Secret's


''Tell me what you want to hear

Something that'll like those ears
Sick of all the insincere
So I'm gonna give all my secrets away this time
Don't need another perfect line
Don't care if critics never jump in line
I'm gonna give all my secrets away''

First Chapter on :  First chapter




Sinopsys - Suze's new life in California is pretty cool. There are the pool parties, the new friends, and the fact that "the" hottest ghost in history happens to live in her bedroom.
But when a screaming spirit appears at the end of her bed, Suze is thrown on to the trail of a murderer. All the clues lead to the freaky father of Tad Beaumont, the cutest boy in school . . . and the only guy who's ever asked Suze out. Not only is her potential beau's dad probably a killer, but he also seems be some kind of "vampire."

No one said that life as a mediator was going to be simple. But this is getting ridiculous . .







'' sometimes I am convinced my life is just a series of sketches for America's Funniest Home Videos, minus all that pants-dropping business. Except my life really isn't all that funny if you think about it.” 
High Stakes - Meg Cabot



    She is back, and the wonderfull ghost Jesse Too. On this book we see what happens when we do not have all the information and ended up swapping their toes.Due to great confusion she now sees trapped she's on  trail of a creepy local businessman, who just might be a vampire.



''It's kind of depressing, if you think about it. I mean, me being so young, and yet so cynical and suspicious.” 
High Stakes - Meg Cabot


The book brings a bit of Good suzanna trying to reconcile parties, friends and your routine to help the ghosts around you. the most interesting part is the connection between Suze and Doc,  he is really cute. 

The book is very good, has simple and catchy language is not intediante. Meg keeps the magic to describe the story. and to finalize the paçlavras I get the good and old Father Dom

''Father Dom looked taken aback. "Normal?" he echoed. As in, who would ever want to be that?” 
High Stakes - Meg Cabot




The song for this book is Mr. Confusion by Beeshop ... for one just quote.

''The truth is there to be told

So try to stop
Stop breaking hearts
Stop hurting souls
And hurt yourself'''

[Review] Covet - Fallen angels#1 - J.R. Ward

If you love the BDB series will fall for this fallen angel's...

                                                    ''Life is too frickin' crazy sometimes, it really is.... 
                                                    You never know what's going to happen, do you.”

First Chapter on : Exerpt


Seven deadly sins. Seven souls to save. This is the first battle between a savior who doesn't believe and a demon with nothing to lose!

Redemption isn't a word Jim Heron knows much about-his specialty is revenge, and to him, sin is all relative. But everything changes when he becomes a fallen angel and is charged with saving the souls of seven people from the seven deadly sins. And failure is not an option. 

Vin DiPietro long ago sold his soul to his business, and he's good with that-until fate intervenes in the form of a tough-talking, Harley-riding, self-professed savior. And then he meets a woman who will make him question his destiny, his sanity, and his heart-and he has to work with a fallen angel to win her over and redeem his own soul.





First of all The book drags in certain spots because there is a lot of back story about each character that needs to be told, but there are also moments of action. Now, keep in mind because this is a romance novel the action scenes are few and far between, but the few that do exist leave an impact on the reader, especially the ending.


“I'm an angel not a frickin' saint.” 

      Both the angels and the demons need to agree on the identity a player, or champion, for their cause. This champion must be acceptable to both sides, therefore needs to have an equal capacity to do good and bad, and it will be up to this one person to influence the fate of seven souls. The winning side of the game will be the one with the most number of souls. Since there are to be seven souls in play there is no chance of a draw or tie-breaker. If the angels win the Earth will be “nothing but one giant frickin’ Christmas morning.” If the demons win, they get to keep all the souls on Earth and the angels will be slaves for all eternity.



“Don't be an asshole," the guy snapped as he cracked a freshie.

"Oh, right, because two in this group would be overkill.”


Do not forget the great humor from acid in all stories auntie Ward.

“No offense-but until I see it, I'm not going to believe it."
"And that is why you will fail."
Adrian cursed and hit the door. "Great, you've got him channeling Yoda again. Can we get moving before he levitates my fucking bike?” 



To finish this excellent book, the story is very well intrinsic, fell in love with his characters in a heartbeat. It's one of those series that you will read and reread.
And the soundtrak is with the badlees  with fear of faling.. because .... 


You can fly, fly, fly 

Off to anywhere you choose 

You can try, try, try 
But eventually you'll lose 
It seems there's always something 
Tryin' to bring a good man down 
I have no fear of falling 
But I hate hitting the ground

First Chapter on : Halfway to the grave 1 Chapter

Synopsys - Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unholy partnership.

In exchange for finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner—are there actually good vampires? Pretty soon Bones will have her convinced that being half-dead doesn't have to be all bad. But before she can enjoy her newfound status as kick-ass demon hunter, Cat and Bones are pursued by a group of killers. Now Cat will have to choose a side . . . and Bones is turning out to be as tempting as 
man with a heartbeat.







okay. I have to confess when I picked up the book I thought ''another vampire book'' . I take back everything I thought, Jeaniene just surprised me with the story. The characters are well structured. There are no loose ends. The mood acid is present in a way that enriches the story, not only to take up space.


''I'm saying that I'm a moody, insecure, narrow-minded, jealous, borderline homicidal bitch, and I want you to promise me that you're okay with that, because it's who I am, and you're what I need.”


Bonnes became nothing more than my favorite character, and the way it interacts with the Cat is fantastic. In every line you can see the connection between the two.


“If you run from me, I will chase you, and I'll find you....” 




The temperament of the Cat is perfect . first stab then ask... I confess that I gave a good laugh's with this satirical temperament and mood.
“You're not a woman," he said finally. "You're the Grim Reaper with red hair!”

If you were to choose one note I would give full marks, the book is just perfect.

I'm dying of curiosity about the next book, this one definitely left a wanting more. more. then how would  say bonnes 

“Let's go, Kitten, before you kill someone else.





The soundtrack is with Stone sour -  Say You’ll Haunt Me.  Just because I think is the perfect song for Cat and Bonnes History



Say you want to stay, you want me to
Say you'll never die, you'll always haunt me
I want to know I belong to you
Say you'll haunt me

Together, together we'll be together, together
forever
